Denis Dyack says EVE is better than WoW {WoW}

Aug 28th 2008 4:04PM So, because someone doesn't agree with you, you can't take a good natured riposte or jibe without a solid batch emo pouting?

Players respond to the cinematic {WoW}

Aug 21st 2008 4:27PM "Welp, the cinematic is out now for your viewing pleasure..."

I'm *really* not a petty person or a pedant, but don't you think it's gone on long enough now? MAKE EVERY AUTHOR ON WOWINSIDER AWARE OF THEIR SPELLCHECK FUNCTION.

That is all.

The fastest way to play Arena PvP {WoW}

May 2nd 2008 8:29AM All this talk of keyboards - let's not forget the humble mouse! I have a logitech laser mouse that has an extra mini-button to the left of the left mouse button, a scoll wheel that tilt-clicks from left to right, and two buttons reachable with my right thumb. This gives me five extra buttons I can map without losing any functionality here.The extra mini-button is right there and so easy to press, so it's Blink on my mage, for example.

I then bind all the other abilities to Q, E, R, F etc as well as shift, ctrl, and alt modifiers for each. Just map strafe to A and D, it's all you need. I use a bar mod that lays out the buttons in a way that makes sense so I don't forget which key does what, and have the option of clicking if I need to. Another huge improvement for me was binding targetting to the mousewheel (I use ctrl-mousewheel for the old "zoom adjust") and this frees up TAB for binding as well.

Can WoW be beaten? {WoW}

May 2nd 2008 8:16AM "There's no sense in trying to predict if a game will top WoW before its actually on the market, because all you have is hype and hope to go on.

Conan won't do it. Sorry folks, but it just doesn't cater to most of WoW's audience "

So despite there being no sense in making predictions, you're happy to have a go anyway? Way to undermine your own opinion!

How misspelling might get you keylogged {WoW}

May 1st 2008 11:58AM "Yeah, install addblock and be unable to use most sites - including some honest wow sites which have been hacked in the past."

Properly configured, Adblock won't stop you using anything.

"So they can program software to hide on your machine and record and relay your keyboard presses, but not read the text box where your login is - yeah right."

Yeah. Right.

It's easy to intercept keystrokes coming in from a keyboard but difficult to create some software that would scan the screen and recognise exactly where it needs to look, and recognise the characters that are in that area of the screen - which are often masked with asterisks anyway.


It's not a problem that you seem have no idea how technology of this nature works. It's hardly a requisite. But it does make you sound like an idiot when you use your position of ingorance to launch sarcastic attacks against people who are ultimately better informed than you.

The Wow-ku challenge {WoW}

"That Spell Isn't Ready Yet"
Glib elf mage has died.

Forum Post of the Day: Player tries to scam GM for epic flight training, gets shut down {WoW}

Apr 18th 2008 9:15PM Wait, I'm confused. How many logs do they have access to, and what is their policy on using them?

Gold prices dropping in the US {WoW}

Apr 18th 2008 7:37AM Durc, not so. I've only recently come back to the game, rolling a new character on a new server with some RL friends who started playing. A new character can pick herbs, ore etc and sell to the "level 70 attuned" prices. Fishing deviate fish has given me all my 18-slot bags and a ton of gold in the bank and I'm still only level 23.

Gold prices dropping in the US {WoW}

Apr 18th 2008 2:44AM This chart doesn't show anything about the amount of people buying gold or amounts of real world money changing hands - only that a single unit of gold has fallen in price.

With all the dailies and easy access to gold, there is inflation happening in WoW. One gold is worth less than it used to be. This is surely reflected in the gold sellers prices too.

Maybe people are still buying gold as much as they did before, and the sellers are making as much money from it - they're just buying MORE gold for their money now.

Addon Spotlight: Control Freak {WoW}

Apr 12th 2008 6:05AM Good work Tekkub, have used your addons for a while now and they are always streamlined and do exactly what they need to without frills.

One "frill" I'd love to see in Control Freak (or perhaps you can recommend an alternative) would be somethng that simply barks out what has happened to a sheep (sap, trap..) that has been broken. E.g a simple "/p Sheep broken by Lulzhuntar's Multi-Shot" just so everyone knows a) the sheep is free and incoming and b) the mage is aware.

Is this possible?
